IRVING, Texas & GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced that AMECO, its tool and equipment unit, celebrated the grand opening of its new global headquarters today in Greenville, South Carolina.
Fluor designed and engineered the new LEED-certified space that features collaborative working space and the latest technology. Senior executives from Fluor and AMECO and elected officials and employees attended the celebration of the new headquarters.
“AMECO’s expertise in tools and equipment for large construction projects is an integral part of Fluor’s construction offerings and is just one visible element of Fluor’s commitment to increasing its self-perform construction work,” said Garry Flowers, president of AMECO and head of Project Support Services for Fluor.
“With the demand for AMECO’s capabilities and services, it was apparent just how much AMECO had outgrown the capacity of the old building, which had been used for 20 years as a multipurpose facility,” said Tracey Cook, AMECO’s vice president of Global Operations. “By consolidating AMECO's staff resources into one building in one location, we are better able to effectively and efficiently execute project work no matter where it is located throughout the world.”
With AMECO’s deep roots in Greenville, the company elected to construct its new facility on the grounds of the property that has housed AMECO operations for nearly 40 years and is familiar to customers, suppliers and contractors.
